Nice location, restaurant food is great, but service was very slow, even with many tables empty, almost missed the play.. Hotel staff are pleasant. Theatre is one block away. Slightly upscale price overall, would be worth it with service improvements to the Watermark restaurant.

Visited Gananoque Inn Watermark restaurant today, horrible service, waited at a dirty patio table for 20-25 minutes for the waitress to bring a menu, then she realized she needed to clean the table, so it took her another 10 minutes or so to reappear with a cloth and a drink menu. Despite the temperature on the patio being about 30... More

So glad we decided to spend our 20th anniversary in Gananoque and so pleased we decided to stay at Gananoque Inn and Spa. From the moment we walked in we felt welcomed. It is so clean, and the grounds are gorgeous. The food was top quality and delicious. It is close to the Gananoque Boat Line and Playhouse so once... More

This was a last minute decision whilst on a family trip (from Australia). The service was wonderful, facilitates were fine and the setting was amazing and picturesque. In addition the township of Gananoque offered plenty of sightseeing and restaurants

Nice Place! Great Romantic View! Pleasant service! Clean! Would recommend this place for Couples! Business! Solo! Friends! Regarding Family's it's depends what they looking for...We are travelling with a small child. The room we got has 2 beds (I was too tiered to realise it right away). It's not really suitable, when you travel with a child. And the room... More

Thank you for your review. Should you choose to return some time we do have more spacious rooms with fridges and microwaves. We can also supply extra beds or pack 'n plays for little ones. There is a great splash pad and beach just a short walk away. Our small grandchildren recommend it! More

Our room was huge in this nice, cozy inn, as well as the bathroom. It was the Prime Minister room.We had a sheltered terrace with a river view over the cottages roof, lot of silence, and a sunshining day that helped to enjoy the boat trip. Breakfast was good, although we had to wait a bit after ordering. The gardens... More

Thank you for your review. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed the spacious Prime Minister's Suite so named because we had the pleasure of hosting a PM a few years ago. While some of our guests come seeking tranquility many others take advantage of the activities in the 1000 Islands area from golf to kayaking to cycling... More

My husband and I spent a June weekend here with another couple while we enjoyed Gananoque's boat cruise to Boldt Castle, and the Thousand Islands Playhouse. It was a wonderful weekend and the inn added a lot to the experience. The staff were welcoming and gracious, and the Watermark restaurant provided a delicious dinner. The included breakfast was buffet style... More

For those of you looking for old world with up to date ammenities then this is the place for you. I wouldn't say it's for young kids. No swimming or games. It's relaxing, romantic, quiet, excellent food, amazing staff, comfortable beds, very clean rooms, 2 restaurants, and it's right in the centre of town. Take the cruise to Heart Island!!!,... More

We enjoyed a room by the river with views over the Thousand Islands, good food and service in the pub and the main restaurant, and excellent spa services. A great centre for exploring this region of Ontario!

We travelled to Gananoque on our way home to Maine. The views from the grounds look very much like we see in Maine. We'd never been in that part of the country. The town itself is a bit tired, sad to see empty shop fronts. The homes we walked by were very pretty. Our room was very comfortable, the beds... More

Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your visit in the 1000 Islands area and glad you chose to stay with us. Travelers might like to know that our Watermark Restaurant, also on site and providing fine dining, is a lovely alternative for those not wanting a pub meal. More
